Bluebell Christmas in July

I'm here today with another christmas card, this time using one of my uninked Wild Rose Studio stamps. This one is called 'Bluebell behind presents' which I coloured with Promarkers and added a touch of Stickles on the robins hats. The spotty paper is one of my loose sheets and the others are leftover snippets so not sure where they are from. From a snippet of glitter card I die cut a star and punched some tiny snowflakes (they don't show up too well on the photo but I think you can just about see them) Finally I added some pearls from my stash.

and here's a close up ahowing the 3 snowflakes haven't melted away! I just couldn't get them to show up properly on the top photo

I shall enter this in the following challenges ~
Magnolia-licious challenge 'christmas in July'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'three of three' (3 pearls, 3 snowflakes, 3 robins on image)
